Urban Heat Islands: Using Simulated Regolith Mars Soil by Christian J. Mercado

Project:     NASA Heliophysics Teacher-Developed Lessons

In this lesson students will study the effects of human impact on the environment and its relationship to changes in temperature. Unlike other lessons, in this one we will use simulated Mars soil. This will allow them to measure the different changes that Martian soil may have had when the planet Mars was habitable at some point.
